The RITM Training Center was built in 1989 with the goal of becoming the Center for Training in Infectious Disease—including trainings of medical and paramedical personnel within the Institution, from other health agencies in the country, and from other developing countries in the region. The Training Center also aims to establish network between RITM’s research scientists and health professionals and potential research workers from outside the Institution, locally and internationally.

The Training Center houses an auditorium, lecture rooms, laboratories, and offices. The Auditorium has a 188 seating capacity and a projection room complete with audio-visual, LCD and overhead projectors, sound units, and projection screen. There are 3 lecture rooms in the building, with each rooms accommodating at least 25 to 30 persons.
